Another all-Central Okanagan matchup will take centre stage under the lights this Friday at the Apple Bowl.

At 6:30 p.m in B.C. high school football action, the Mt. Boucherie Bears (2-2) will take on the Rutland Voodoos (0-3).

The first game at 4 p.m. at the Apple Bowl will pit the Kelowna Owls (2-1) against the St. Thomas More Collegiate Knights (3-1).

KSS 28 Rutland 19

Last Friday, the Owls earned their second win with a hard-fought 28-19 victory over the Voodoos. KSS jumped on Rutland early as Parker Simson connected with Seth Campbell for a pair of touchdown passes, while Trevor Ash ran 15 yards to make it 21-0 at the half.

Rutland responded with a solid second half, as Mitchel Walz struck for three majors to make it close. But Simson connected with Campbell for a third TD to put the game out of reach.

Simson passed for 82 yards and rushed for 78 more for KSS.

Cory McCoy was a workhorse for the Voodoos with 123 yards rushing.

On defense, Owls’ Sean McMechan had 12 tackles and a fumble recovery, while Ash added 10 tackles. Walz had 11 tackles and Brayden Jamault had nine tackles and a fumble recovery for Rutland.

“We have been steadily improving, but haven’t put a full game together,” said Voodoos coach Peter McCall. “We need to clean up our special teams and limit our turnovers, and I think we can give Mt. B a run for their money this Friday.”

Mt. Boucherie 24 W.J. Mouat 13

The Bears earned their second win of the season over a Lower Mainland opponent, beating the W.J. Mouat Hawks Friday at the Apple Bowl.

A solid defensive effort saw the Bears limit the province’s top rusher Jacob Dodd to just 50 yards.

“Chandler Bayer, Scott Carter, Lance Stanley, Max Stoochnoff and Olin Fenton did a great job defeating Mouat blockers and allowing our linebackers to run to the ball,” said Bears coach Mike Godwin.

Boucherie had two fumble recoveries, along with a Kache Kopec interception and three sacks from linebacker Brock Zeleniski.

On offense, Zac Callaghan had 109 yards on 18 carries, while Aiden McLeod and Zeleniski scored majors for Boucherie. Dayton Moore chipped in with an 86-yard kick off return for a TD.
